COLONOSCOPY…Dave Barry’s Journal

Got the following hilarious email from a friend….with a hint of seriousness that a colonoscopy is not as bad as we imagine!!!


ABOUT THE WRITER: Dave Barry is a Pulitzer Prize-winning humor columnist for the Miami Herald.
Dave Barry’s Colonoscopy Journal:

I called my friend Andy Sable, a gastroenterologist, to make
an appointment for a colonoscopy.

A few days later, in his office, Andy showed me a color diagram of the colon, a lengthy organ that appears to go all over the place, at one point passing briefly through  Minneapolis.

Then Andy explained the colonoscopy procedure to me in a thorough, reassuring and patient manner.

I nodded thoughtfully, but I didn’t really hear anything he said, because my brain was shrieking, ‘HE’S GOING TO STICK A TUBE 17,000 FEET UP YOUR BEHIND!’
